Velocity Based Training

Anyone here have any experience using velocity based training (VBT)? I am thinking of buying a BarSensei to help me out in the gym. It costs $375, which isn't too bad, but I thought I would ask here before I made the investment. It seems like it would have application in helping to figure out what load to use to match the velocities seen during sprinting. Some of these sensors can even calculate peak power and average power, which would also help to figure out what resistance has the best "bang for the buck". It seems it would also be helpful in figuring out your particular "force velocity curve" - aka are your strong and slow vs. weak and fast.

Has anyone used one of these devices? Did it make a difference in your training? Do you think it was worthwhile?
